Paper Abstract

We present the conceptual design of a new interferometric instrument designed to combine a large number of apertures by means of 3D photonic beam combiners. We discuss 1) the general layout of the system, 2) the technical constraints for the instrument and 3) estimated performance of the instrument based on the modeling of the beam combiner based on real coupling data from fiber-fed instruments.
